Care instructions:

  • The basking heat lamp temperature should be at least 90 degrees F.
  • Do not handle when the animal is close to shedding its skin--the eyes will appear cloudy.
  • Provide a small water dish because they need to be kept at a low humidity.
  • You should feed a vitamin and mineral enriched small mouse once per week.
  • It requires shelter at all times.
  • Move the shelter and water dish around to provide a change in the environment.
  • Occasionally provide a sandbox for a change in substrate.
